Woodstock Film – Classic Cinema Hastings February 1971

woodstock record

Andy Qunta… Fabulous!

Alan Esdaile… I wonder why they gave the film a ‘x’ certificate? I remember a bit of nudity and swearing but apart from that great music.

Jeanette Jones… I still remember the atmosphere in the cinema too, Like nothing l’d experienced before, Now l’d call it loving energy:-) Dancing in the walk ways, The X rating probably due to it’s anti war stance, l remember Country Joe and the Fish and it’s 123 what are we fighting for? etc, Think Joan Baez did a peace song too, What do others remember?

Patrick Lewis… Santana ‘Soul Sacrifice’.

Alan Esdaile… I remember singing along to Country Joe and the Fish Jeanette and I think we clapped and cheered when something good came on.

John Wilde… Thats when I learned best not to take LSD at a movie theatre.

Dave Nattress… An absolute Milestone in Rock Culture, as for me at least was the film, Easy Rider and The Isle of Wight Festivals and Bath (Shepton Mallet), 1970?

Jeanette Jones… Santana stole the show but l loved Janice and no one but Hendrix could have performed Star Spangled Banner with such irony and showmanship;-)

Pete Prescott… Avoid me more than ever ! I’m a Woodstock bore! I still have the triple album and the directors cut dvd plus a couple of books. I payed this album to death ! I saw the film in Erith when it first came out. Creams farewell concert was on first then Woodstock. I’ll never forget it ! Crosby Stills Nash and Young were big for me. I used to open the windows to my bedroom and wait for the neighbours to come home then play the “fish cheer” (what a plonker! ) I so wanted to be there. I was 13 and living in a small village in North Kent.

Glenn Piper… I remember the haze from all the ‘smoking’ that was going on in the cinema. I was in the balcony for this.

Tony Court-holmes… I was with you glen that day.

Glenn Piper… Yes, a good day all round. We must get together sometime soon Tony

Alan Esdaile… you could join us at the next SMART meeting on Friday 19th February 2016 at 3.30pm at The White Rock Hotel.

Jeanette Jones… Always a good place to meet too:-)

Andy Qunta…  I saw that couple from the cover being interviewed a few years ago. They’re still together!  I loved the movie, of course!

Alan King… Great managerial decisions of our time : Keef Harley Band’s manager ‘you’re not filming our boys without more money’ – ‘OK then we won’t film your boys’ – Miller Anderson’s recollection of Woodstock https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=V2vdsr0Msls
